    The sight glass on my 1990 VFR750 is weeping a little. I'd like to replace it and want to avoid ordering the wrong parts. If you have replaced one on your bike I'd be interested to know some details. Cheers.

    I replaced mine on my '83 Magna, that was eons ago.... it was a generic sight glass, cheap. Remove old one, clean really well, wipe with alcohol, smear a little RTV around the outer edge of the recess and press the new one in. Easy, really. Measure diameter to get the appropriate size. Sorry I have not looked as sourcing a new "glass".

    Hit up Joe Nelson. He’s sourced some glass replacements and includes good instructions. He has a few other useful things for earlier VFRs, so scroll down this page a bit to find the sight glass parts:
